Latin America: Back to the Future, at MACBA

Latin America: Back to the future goes through a topography of unsuspected connections between regional modernizing projects and contemporary artistic practices. From the concrete works of the 1950s to the re-readings of that legacy in the present, the exhibition articulates a vast geographical and temporal threshold in which emerge a set of survivals and returns that explode any linear conception of the temporal passage.

Medail & Pedroni: La semejanza y la Pausa

The notion of similarity seems to have a clear reference in the context of the exhibition: it refers to the use of photography as a reproduction, a faithful record of monuments and works. The connotations of the second term are, on the other hand, less evident, although they seem to point to the instants (or is it, perhaps, of places?) In which the alluded resemblance stops.

Daniel Boccato: Centinela

The proposals of Daniel Boccato (Campinas, Brazil, 1991) investigate the relationship between abstraction and figuration and are based on the investigation of the different discursive forms that pose language and form, suggesting other foundations that establish a new thinking with which to challenge any constriction. All this is reflected in Centinela, his last performance and specific project for the space Studies of the old tobacco factory in Madrid, where he follows another of the constants of his production: the breaking of any convention on formats and the preferential use of materials and objects of an industrial nature.

Sandra Gamarra: Rojo Indio

In her recent exhibition for the gallery in Madrid, Sandra Gamarra (Lima, Peru, 1972) returns to use the concept of imposition of Western thought, channeled through the appropriation of that vision in Latin America. Nonetheless, the exploration of cultural perception and assimilation are, in a certain way, habitual subjects of study in her trajectory. For the occasion, the space plays a fundamental role for the understanding of the proposal. This, although conformed by several pieces, works as a single environment where everything dialogues within the conceptual framework.
